Medical bone screws, implants, feed screws, worm gears and other micro-components creates a need for techniques that produce special thread forms quickly and at high tolerances.

CoroMill® 325 thread whirling inserts and holders meet this need for a large number of sliding head machines and whirling units. They can thread long, slender components from rough stock at high speeds and produce a wide range of high precision screws without the need for a dedicated thread whirling machine.

Step by step instructions

  1. Find a whirling ring fitting your drive unit and an insert fitting your desired thread
  2. Mount the whirling ring onto the whirling unit and install the inserts
  3. Set the tool inclination to the helix angle of the thread and set the centre of the tool to a zero position of X=0, Y=0
  4. Program the ring off-centre, in relation to the diameter according to the diameter of the screw wanted
  5. Turn and mill any tip of the screw wanted
  6. Start the thread whirling machining.
    1. Rotate the whirling ring and component in the same direction (climb milling) for best results regarding tool life
    2. Rotate the whirling ring to actual cutting speed
    3. Rotate the workpiece at a slower speed, coordinated with the tool rotation to get the feed per tooth wanted. Coordinate movement of the whirling ring with the rotation of the component for best surface and productivity
  7.  Feed the workpiece info the cutter coordinated with the rotation to generate the thread.
